apt-get install returns with
E: Unable to locate package msodbcsql (error code 100). I'm trying to access an SQL Server database with my system, and so I'm following Microsoft's instructions to install their driver for Linux.
I've tried specifying the package version:
apt-get install -y msodbcsql17 and using the package for both Debian 8 and 9. I've tried to confirm the system version, as I'm actually building a Docker container from
Debian:stretch-slim -> Python:3.6-slim, and I'm leaning towards Debian 8, because the version number in other images is explicitly 9.
What could be my options trying to install the package? Other ways or steps of troubleshooting?
Many thanks in advance. I'm new to Linux in general, so any pointers are greatly appreciated!
According to bash:
cat /etc/debian_version my version is actually 9.5.
